Hi, my car is lowered with H&R springs, and recently the shocks have died. My ride is HORRIBLE and it handles like crap. Now being I am super broke, I will try to fix these with the least amount of money possible. If it costs too much I will probably keep usin the dead shocks. So if anyone can help please let me know.I know that if i change to OEM they will break again, but i need it for temporary use until i can rack up some cash.

1. DOES ANYONE HAVE THEIR OEM SHOCKS THAT THEY DONT WANT? preferably in So Cal?Please PM ME asap thanks

2.DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET AFTER MARKET SHOCKS for CHEAP? If so how much do you think it will run??

THANKS

Hi, Jon, are the Koni Shocks the Yellow ones? If so how well do they complement the H and R springs? Or would other springs be better for them?

Yes these are the Yellow Konis. They're a perfect match for aftermarket springs especially the H&R Sports or Race Springs.

if ur oem shocks went with ur new springs once, dont you think it would happen again? i think your best bet would be to get the new koni single adjustables, that is assuming you can afford it.

I have SA konis in front and DA konis in back with HR sports. I love the setup. I'm looking to part my car. PM me if you are interested.

How many miles did you have before and after you put on the springs.. I have heard of this issue, but never seen anyone that it actually happened to .. I am curious now..
